I'll let you know how well the Noddy book eBay sales go after tomorrow....when the eBay 'auction' ends.
Meanwhile, I may have broken my "read only biographical books" habit!
It happened like this: Bought stuff to cook for a semi-special dinner (next Monday). Decided I needed a lemon and, as those on our tree are not ripe yet and, as I had seen dozens of lemons at the op shop the other day, I went to buy some there. They had none. So, as I felt oblliged to the dear lady at the op shop, who tried so hard to find me a lemon (!), I browsed for a while and ended up buying a useful (drinking) glass and two books to read. One is by John Marsden (of the "Tomorrow When The War Began" fame), called "The Night is For Hunting" and the other book - quite different - is "The Widow's Tale", by Mick Jackson, a story set on the Norfolk coast (UK), which should be lovely, even if mainly for the scenery descriptions....and also for the fact that it was not so long ago short-listed for the Booker Prize.
So, two books that are not true stories to look forward to reading. (I've broken the habit....maybe?)
